PROXY STATEMENT FOR

SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS OF

REVOLUTION HEALTHCARE ACQUISITION CORP.

Dear Stockholders of Revolution Healthcare Acquisition Corp.:

You are cordially invited to attend a special meeting of stockholders of Revolution Healthcare Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”), to be held at 9:00 a.m., eastern time, on                 , 2022 (the “Special Meeting”), or at such other time and on such other date to which the meeting may be adjourned or postponed. The Special Meeting will be held via the Internet and will be a completely virtual meeting of stockholders. You will be able to attend the Special Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and submit your questions during the Special Meeting by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/revolutionhealthcareacqcorp/2022. To attend the Special Meeting, you will need the 12-digit control number that is printed on your proxy card. We recommend logging in at least fifteen minutes before the meeting to ensure that you are logged in when the meeting starts. Online check-in will start shortly before the meeting on                 , 2022. The accompanying proxy statement is dated                 , 2022, and is first being mailed to stockholders of the Company on or about                 , 2022.

Even if you are planning on attending the Special Meeting online, please promptly submit your proxy vote by completing, dating, signing and returning the enclosed proxy, so that your shares will be represented at the Special Meeting. It is strongly recommended that you complete and return your proxy card before the Special Meeting date to ensure that your shares will be represented at the Special Meeting. Instructions on how to vote your shares are in the accompanying proxy statement and the other proxy materials you received for the Special Meeting.

The Special Meeting is being held to consider and vote upon the following proposals:

 

1.

Proposal No. 1 – The Charter Amendment Proposal – to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter”) pursuant to an amendment to the Charter in the form set forth in Annex A of the accompanying proxy statement (the “Charter Amendment”) to amend the date by which the Company must cease its operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”), and redeem all of the shares of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (“Class A Common Stock”), included as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering that was completed on March 22, 2021 (the “IPO”), from March 22, 2023 (the “Original Termination Date”) to                 , 2022, the date of the Special Meeting (the “Amended Termination Date”) (the “Charter Amendment Proposal”);

 

2.

Proposal 2 – Trust Amendment Proposal – to amend the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated March 17, 2021 (the “Trust Agreement”), by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, as trustee (“Continental”), pursuant to an amendment to the Trust Agreement in the form set forth in Annex B of the accompanying Proxy Statement (the “Trust Amendment” and together with the Charter Amendment, the “Amendments”), to change the date on which Continental must commence liquidation of the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”) to the Amended Termination Date (the “Trust Amendment Proposal” and together with the Charter Amendment Proposal, the “Amendment Proposals”); and

 

3.

Proposal No. 3 – The Adjournment Proposal – to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting from time to time to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Amendment Proposals or if otherwise determined by the chairperson of the Special Meeting to be necessary or appropriate (the “Adjournment Proposal”).


Table of Contents

The Company will transact no other business at the Special Meeting, except such business as may properly come before the Special Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof.

Each of the Amendment Proposals is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. Each of the Amendment Proposals and the Adjournment Proposal is more fully described in the accompanying proxy statement, which you are encouraged to read carefully.

The purpose of the Amendment Proposals is to allow the Company to return capital to stockholders prior to the Original Termination Date. The Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) believes returning capital from the Trust Account to our stockholders is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise be redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Based upon the amount held in the Trust Account as of                 , 2022, which was $                , the Company estimates that the per-share price at which shares of Class A Common Stock may be redeemed from cash held in the Trust Account will be approximately $                 at the time of the Special Meeting. The closing price of a share of Class A Common Stock on                 , 2022 was $                . The Company cannot assure stockholders that they will be able to sell their shares of Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in its securities when such stockholders wish to sell their shares.


Table of Contents

You will be entitled to receive cash for any of our shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed by you pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption only if you:

 

  (i)

(a) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock or (b) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock as part of units sold by the Company in its IPO and elect to separate such units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising your redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock; and

 

  (ii)

prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on                , 2022 (two business days prior to the vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment thereof), (a) submit a written request to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, the Company’s transfer agent, that the Company redeem your shares of Class A Common Stock for cash and (b) tender or deliver your shares of Class A Common Stock and other redemption forms to the transfer agent, physically or electronically through The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).

Holders of our public units must elect to separate such public units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption. If holders hold their public units in an account at a brokerage firm or bank, holders must notify their broker or bank, as applicable, that they elect to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants, or if a holder holds public units registered in its, his or her own name, the holder must contact the transfer agent directly and instruct it to do so. Your broker, bank or other nominee may have an earlier deadline by which you must provide instructions to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants in order to exercise redemption rights pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock underlying our public units, so you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee or intermediary. Stockholders may elect to redeem all or a portion of their shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption even if they vote against the Amendment Proposals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, stockholders will not have their shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

You are not being asked to vote on an initial Business Combination at this time. We have determined that it is very unlikely that we will be able to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we plan to cease all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter, which the Board believes is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.


Table of Contents

The Board believes that the current provisions of the Charter and the existing Trust Agreement are intended to protect our stockholders from having to sustain their investment in our shares of Class A Common Stock for an unreasonably long period if we were unable to find a suitable Business Combination partner by the Original Termination Date. However, even though the Board has determined that it is very unlikely that we would be able to complete a Business Combination before the Original Termination Date, in the absence of an amendment to the Charter and Trust Agreement, we are not permitted by the existing Charter and Trust Agreement to return the funds in the Trust Account to public stockholders by way of liquidating the Trust Account until after the Original Termination Date, and the public stockholders may only exercise their redemption rights in connection with a stockholder vote on a proposed Business Combination or upon the vote by the stockholders of the Company to approve an amendment to the Charter relating to specified rights of holders of shares Class A Common Stock.

The securities offered in our IPO were units comprised of one share of Class A Common Stock and one-fifth of one redeemable warrant. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we plan to voluntarily delist our shares of Class A Common Stock, public units and public warrants from the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) as soon as practicable after the Amended Termination Date, subject to the rules of Nasdaq and our Charter, as amended.

For further details about the reasons for the Amendment Proposals, see the sections titled “Proposal No. 1 — The Charter Amendment Proposal — Reasons for the Charter Amendment Proposal” and “Proposal No. 2 — The Trust Amendment Proposal — Reasons for the Trust Amendment Proposal,” respectively, of this proxy statement.

We reserve the right to move to adjourn the Special Meeting in the event that the Board determines before the Special Meeting that is not necessary or no longer desirable to proceed with the Amendment Proposals. In that event, at the Special Meeting we will ask our stockholders to vote only upon the Adjournment Proposal and not on the Amendment Proposals.

Approval of each of the Amendment Proposals requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of the then-outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Class B Common Stock” and, together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”) entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class. As of the Record Date, the Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors, and Health Assurance Economy Foundation, a charitable foundation (“Foundation”, and together with the Sponsor, collectively, the “Initial Stockholders”) and their permitted transferees collectively own shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company that entitles such holders, in the aggregate, to 20% of the aggregate voting power of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company (the “Class A Common Stock”) and Class B Common Stock of the Company (the “Class B Common Stock” and, together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”) entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, and are expected to vote all of their shares in favor of each proposal to be voted upon by our stockholders at the Special Meeting.

Approval of the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock present at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class.

THE COMPANY’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE “FOR” EACH OF THE AMENDMENT PROPOSALS AND THE ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL.

The Board has fixed 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on                , 2022, as the record date for the Special Meeting (the “Record Date”). Only stockholders of record on                , 2022, are entitled to notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof. Further information regarding voting rights and the matters to be voted upon is presented in the accompanying proxy statement.

You will be able to attend the Special Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and submit your questions during the Special Meeting by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/revolutionhealthcareacqcorp/2022. To ensure your representation at the Special Meeting, however, you are urged to complete, sign, date and return your proxy card as soon as possible. If your shares are held in an account at a


Table of Contents

brokerage firm or bank, you must instruct your broker or bank on how to vote your shares. You may revoke your proxy card at any time prior to the Special Meeting.

A stockholder’s failure to vote by proxy or to vote by virtual attendance will not be counted towards the number of shares of Common Stock required to validly establish a quorum. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” each of the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Trust Amendment Proposal and Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. Please sign, date and return your proxy card as soon as possible. You are requested to carefully read the proxy statement and accompanying Notice of Special Meeting for a more complete statement of matters to be considered at the Special Meeting.

If you have any questions or need assistance voting your shares of Common Stock, please contact Okapi Partners LLC, our proxy solicitor, by calling (877) 259-6290, or banks and brokers can call collect at (212) 297-0720, or by emailing info@okapipartners.com.

Jay Markowitz, M.D.

3.

Proposal No. 3 – The Adjournment Proposal – to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting from time to time to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Amendment Proposals or if otherwise determined by the chairperson of the Special Meeting to be necessary or appropriate (the “Adjournment Proposal”).


Table of Contents

The Company will transact no other business at the Special Meeting, except such business as may properly come before the Special Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof.

Each of the Amendment Proposals is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. Each of the Amendment Proposals and the Adjournment Proposal is more fully described in the accompanying proxy statement, which you are encouraged to read carefully.

The purpose of the Amendment Proposals is to allow the Company to return capital to stockholders prior to the Original Termination Date. The Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) believes returning capital from the Trust Account to our stockholders is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Based upon the amount held in the Trust Account as of                 , 2022, which was $                , the Company estimates that the per-share price at which shares of Class A Common Stock may be redeemed from cash held in the Trust Account will be approximately $                 at the time of the Special Meeting. The closing price of a share of Class A Common Stock on                 , 2022 was $                . The Company cannot assure stockholders that they will be able to sell their shares of Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in its securities when such stockholders wish to sell their shares.


Table of Contents

You will be entitled to receive cash for any of our shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed by you pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption only if you:

 

  (i)

(a) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock or (b) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock as part of units sold by the Company in its IPO and elect to separate such units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising your redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock; and

 

  (ii)

prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on                , 2022 (two business days prior to the vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment thereof), (a) submit a written request to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, the Company’s transfer agent, that the Company redeem your shares of Class A Common Stock for cash and (b) tender or deliver your shares of Class A Common Stock and other redemption forms to the transfer agent, physically or electronically through The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).

Holders of our public units must elect to separate such public units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption. If holders hold their public units in an account at a brokerage firm or bank, holders must notify their broker or bank, as applicable, that they elect to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants, or if a holder holds public units registered in its, his or her own name, the holder must contact the transfer agent directly and instruct it to do so. Your broker, bank or other nominee may have an earlier deadline by which you must provide instructions to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants in order to exercise redemption rights pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock underlying our public units, so you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee or intermediary. Stockholders may elect to redeem all or a portion of their shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption even if they vote against the Amendment Proposals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, stockholders will not have their shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

You are not being asked to vote on an initial Business Combination at this time. We have determined that it is very unlikely that we will be able to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we plan to cease all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter, which the Board believes is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.

The securities offered in our IPO were units comprised of one share of Class A Common Stock and one-fifth of one redeemable warrant. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we plan to voluntarily delist our shares of Class A Common Stock, public units and public warrants from the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) as soon as practicable after the Amended Termination Date, subject to the rules of Nasdaq and our Charter, as amended.

For further details about the reasons for the Amendment Proposals, see the sections titled “Proposal No. 1 — The Charter Amendment Proposal — Reasons for the Charter Amendment Proposal” and “Proposal No. 2 — The Trust Amendment Proposal — Reasons for the Trust Amendment Proposal,” respectively, of this proxy statement.

We reserve the right to move to adjourn the Special Meeting in the event that the Board determines before the Special Meeting that is not necessary or no longer desirable to proceed with the Amendment Proposals. In that event, at the Special Meeting we will ask our stockholders to vote only upon the Adjournment Proposal and not on the Amendment Proposals.

Approval of each of the Amendment Proposals requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of the then-outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Class B Common Stock” and, together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”) entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class. As of the Record Date, the Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors, and Health Assurance Economy Foundation, a charitable foundation (“Foundation”, and together with the Sponsor, collectively, the “Initial Stockholders”) and their permitted transferees collectively own shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company that entitles such holders, in the aggregate, to 20% of the aggregate voting power of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company (the “Class A Common Stock”) and Class B Common Stock of the Company (the “Class B Common Stock” and, together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”) entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, and are expected to vote all of their shares in favor of each proposal to be voted upon by our stockholders at the Special Meeting.

Approval of the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock present at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class.

THE COMPANY’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE “FOR” EACH OF THE AMENDMENT PROPOSALS AND THE ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL.

The Board has fixed 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on                , 2022, as the record date for the Special Meeting (the “Record Date”). Only stockholders of record on                , 2022, are entitled to notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof. Further information regarding voting rights and the matters to be voted upon is presented in the accompanying proxy statement.

You will be able to attend the Special Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and submit your questions during the Special Meeting by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/revolutionhealthcareacqcorp/2022. To ensure your representation at the Special Meeting, however, you are urged

to complete, sign, date and return your proxy card as soon as possible. If your shares are held in an account at a brokerage firm or bank, you must instruct your broker or bank on how to vote your shares. You may revoke your proxy card at any time prior to the Special Meeting.

A stockholder’s failure to vote by proxy or to vote by virtual attendance will not be counted towards the number of shares of Common Stock required to validly establish a quorum. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” each of the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Trust Amendment Proposal and Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. Please sign, date and return your proxy card as soon as possible. You are requested to carefully read the proxy statement and accompanying Notice of Special Meeting for a more complete statement of matters to be considered at the Special Meeting.

If you have any questions or need assistance voting your shares of Common Stock, please contact Okapi Partners LLC, our proxy solicitor, by calling (877) 259-6290, or banks and brokers can call collect at (212) 297-0720, or by emailing info@okapipartners.com.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This proxy statement contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended, including, without limitation, statements regarding the return of capital to our stockholders, the consequences of not completing an initial Business Combination (as defined below), the release of funds held in the Trust Account (as defined below), the availability of working capital and borrowing capacity and the use of funds outside the Trust Account. Forward-looking statements inherently involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in these statements. Where, in any forward-looking statement, we express an expectation or belief as to future results or events, such expectation or belief is expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis, but such statements necessarily involve risks and uncertainties and there can be no assurance that the expectation or belief will result or be achieved or accomplished. The following include some but not all of the factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated:

 

   

our being a company with no operating history and no revenue;

 

   

our ability to amend the date by which we must complete an initial Business Combination to the Amended Termination Date (as defined below);

 

   

the amount of redemptions by our public stockholders in connection with the Amendments (as defined below) or the initial Business Combination;

 

   

our ability to complete our initial Business Combination;

 

   

actual and potential conflicts of interest relating to the Sponsor (as defined below) and other entities in which members of our management team are involved;

 

   

the ability of our officers and directors to generate a number of potential initial Business Combination opportunities;

 

   

our public securities’ potential liquidity and trading;

 

   

the lack of a market for our securities;

 

   

the use of proceeds not held in the Trust Account or available to us from interest income on the Trust Account balance;

 

   

the Trust Account not being subject to claims of third parties; and

 

   

our financial performance.

Additional information on these and other factors that may cause actual results and the Company’s performance to differ materially is included in the Company’s periodic reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including, but not limited to, our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, including those factors described under the heading “Risk Factors” therein, and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Copies of the Company’s filings with the SEC are available publicly on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or may be obtained by contacting the Company. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. These forward-looking statements are made only as of the date hereof, and the Company undertakes no obligations to update or revise the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE PROXY MATERIALS AND OUR

SPECIAL MEETING

These Questions and Answers are only summaries of the matters they discuss. They do not contain all of the information that may be important to you. You should read carefully the entire document, including any annexes to this proxy statement.

Why am I receiving this proxy statement?

This proxy statement and the enclosed proxy card are being sent to you in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board for use at the Special Meeting to be held by virtual attendance on                 , 2022, or at any adjournments or postponements thereof. This proxy statement summarizes the information that you need to make an informed decision on the proposals to be considered at the Special Meeting.

We are a blank check company formed in Delaware on January 11, 2021, for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. In March 2021, we consummated our IPO from which we derived aggregate gross proceeds of $550.0 million. The amount in the Trust Account was initially $10.00 per public share. Like most blank check companies, our charter provides for the return of our IPO proceeds held in trust to the holders of shares of common stock sold in our IPO if there is no qualifying business combination consummated on or before a certain date (in our case, March 22, 2023).

The purpose of the Amendment Proposals is to allow the Company to return capital to stockholders prior to the Original Termination Date. The Board believes returning the capital in the Trust Account to our stockholders is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. It is important that your shares be represented at the Special Meeting, regardless of the number of shares that you hold. You are, therefore, urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided.

What is being voted on?

You are being asked to vote on the following proposals:

(a) Proposal No. 1 – The Charter Amendment Proposal – to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter”) pursuant to an amendment to the Charter in the form set forth in Annex A of the accompanying proxy statement (the “Charter Amendment”) to amend the date by which the Company must cease its operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”), and redeem all of the shares of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (“Class A Common Stock”), included as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering that was completed on March 22, 2021 (the “IPO”), from March 22, 2023 (the “Original Termination Date”) to                 , 2022, the date of the Special Meeting (the “Amended Termination Date”) (the “Charter Amendment Proposal”);

(b) Proposal 2 – Trust Amendment Proposal – to amend the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated March 17, 2021 (the “Trust Agreement”), by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, as trustee (“Continental”), pursuant to an amendment to the Trust Agreement in the form set forth in Annex B of the accompanying Proxy Statement (the “Trust Amendment” and together with the Charter Amendment, the “Amendments”), to change the date on which Continental must commence liquidation of the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”) to the Amended Termination Date (the “Trust Amendment Proposal” and together with the Charter Amendment Proposal, the “Amendment Proposals”); and

Table of Contents

(c) Proposal No. 3 – The Adjournment Proposal – to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting from time to time to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Amendment Proposals or if otherwise determined by the chairperson of the Special Meeting to be necessary or appropriate (the “Adjournment Proposal”).

You are not being asked to vote on a Business Combination at this time. We have determined that it is very unlikely that we will be able to complete a Business Combination by either the Original Termination Date or the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we plan to cease all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter, which the Board believes is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.

Can I attend the Special Meeting?

The Special Meeting will be held via the Internet and will be a completely virtual meeting of stockholders. You will be able to attend the Special Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and submit your questions during the Special Meeting by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/revolutionhealthcareacqcorp/2022. To enter the Special Meeting, you will need the 12-digit control number that is printed on your proxy card. We recommend logging in at least fifteen minutes before the meeting to ensure that you are logged in when the meeting starts. Online check-in will start shortly before the meeting on                 , 2022. If you do not have your control number, you may contact the Company’s transfer agent, Continental, by calling (917) 262-2373 or emailing proxy@continentalstock.com.

If you hold your shares in “street name,” which means your shares are held of record by a broker, bank or other nominee, you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee to ensure that votes related to the shares you beneficially own are properly counted. In this regard, you must provide the broker, bank or other nominee with instructions on how to vote your shares. If you hold your shares in “street name” and plan to vote at the Special Meeting you will need to have a legal proxy from the broker, bank or other nominee. A copy of the legal proxy will need to be emailed to proxy@continentalstock.com along with your full name, phone number and request for a control number at least 72 hours prior to the Special Meeting for processing. If you would like to join the Special Meeting and neither vote nor ask any questions, you can join as a guest.

You are urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided. You may submit your proxy by completing, signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the accompanying pre-addressed postage-paid envelope.

Why should I vote to approve the Amendments?

Our Board believes stockholders will benefit from the Company having the ability to return capital to our stockholders prior to the Original Termination Date by ceasing all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter.

Since our IPO, our management team evaluated 38 target businesses and employed a broad set of search criteria for potential target businesses. In evaluating potential target businesses, our management team remained focused on finding fair valuations amid volatile market conditions. Amid high valuations in 2021 and a declining IPO market in 2022, we have been unable to secure an opportunity that offered a compelling return on investment for our stockholders. In light of these circumstances, we have determined that it is very unlikely that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date. These factors, combined with recent changes in U.S. federal tax law which may increase our tax liabilities in connection with stockholder redemptions occurring on or after January 1, 2023, have led us to believe that it is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders for the Company to return capital to our stockholders by ceasing all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter.

Table of Contents

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

The purpose of the Amendment Proposals is to allow the Company to return capital to stockholders prior to the Original Termination Date. The Board believes returning capital from the Trust Account to our stockholders is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.

Our Board recommends that you vote in favor of the Amendment Proposals, but expresses no opinion as to whether you should redeem your shares of Class A Common Stock.

When would the Board abandon the Amendment Proposals and the Amendments?

Our Board will abandon the Amendment Proposals if our stockholders do not approve the Amendment Proposals. Additionally, we may decide to abandon the Amendments at any time and for any reason prior to filing the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.

How do the Company insiders intend to vote their shares?

As of the Record Date, the Sponsor, the Company’s officers and directors, and Health Assurance Economy Foundation, a charitable foundation (“Foundation”, and together with the Sponsor, collectively, the “Initial Stockholders”) and their permitted transferees collectively own shares of Class B Common Stock of the

Table of Contents

Company that entitles such holders, in the aggregate, to 20% of the aggregate voting power of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company (the “Class A Common Stock”) and Class B Common Stock of the Company (the “Class B Common Stock” and, together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”) entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, and are expected to vote all of their shares in favor of each proposal to be voted upon by our stockholders at the Special Meeting.

In addition, subject to applicable securities laws (including with respect to material nonpublic information), the Sponsor, the Company’s directors, officers or advisors or any of their respective affiliates may (i) purchase shares of Class A Common Stock from institutional and other investors (including those who vote, or indicate an intention to vote, against any of the proposals presented at the Special Meeting, or elect to redeem, or indicate an intention to redeem, shares of Class A Common Stock), (ii) enter into transactions with such investors and others to provide them with incentives to not redeem their shares of Class A Common Stock, or (iii) execute agreements to purchase such shares of Class A Common Stock from such investors or enter into non-redemption agreements in the future. In the event that the Sponsor, the Company’s directors, officers or advisors or any of their respective affiliates purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in situations in which the tender offer rules and restrictions on purchases would apply, they (a) would purchase the shares of Class A Common Stock at a price no higher than the price offered through the Company’s redemption process (i.e., approximately $                 per share, based on the amounts held in the Trust Account as of                , 2022); (b) would represent in writing that such shares of Class A Common Stock will not be voted in favor of approving the Charter Amendment Proposal; and (c) would waive in writing any redemption rights with respect to the shares of Class A Common Stock so purchased.

Subject to the immediately preceding paragraph, the Sponsor or the Company’s directors, officers or advisors, or any of their respective affiliates, may purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in privately negotiated transactions or in the open market prior to the Special Meeting, although they are under no obligation to do so. Any such purchases that are completed after the Record Date may include an agreement with a selling stockholder that such stockholder, for so long as it remains the record holder of the shares in question, will vote in favor of the proposals and/or will not exercise its redemption rights with respect to the shares so purchased. The purpose of such share purchases and other transactions would be to increase the likelihood that the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting are approved by the requisite number of votes. In the event that such purchases do occur, the purchasers may seek to purchase shares from stockholders who would otherwise have voted against the proposals and elected to redeem their shares for a portion of the Trust Account. Any such privately negotiated purchases may be effected at purchase prices that are below or in excess of the per-share pro rata portion of the Trust Account. None of the funds held in the Trust Account will be used to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock or warrants in such transactions. Any shares of Class A Common Stock held by or subsequently purchased by our affiliates may be voted in favor of the proposals. Additionally, at any time at or prior to the Special Meeting, subject to applicable securities laws (including with respect to material non-public information) the Sponsor or the Company’s directors, officers or advisors, or any of their respective affiliates, may, although they are under no obligation to do so, enter into transactions with investors and others to provide them with incentives to acquire shares of Class A Common Stock, vote their shares of Class A Common Stock in favor of the proposals or not redeem their shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption. The Sponsor and the Company’s directors, officers and advisors and any of their respective affiliates are restricted from making any such purchases when they are in possession of any material nonpublic information not disclosed to the seller of such shares, during a restricted period under Regulation M under the Exchange Act or during any applicable blackout period under the Company’s insider trading policy.

What vote is required to approve the Amendment Proposals?

Approval of each of the Amendment Proposals requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class.

Table of Contents

What vote is required to approve the Adjournment Proposal?

Approval of the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock present at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class.

What if I want to vote against or do not want to vote for any of the proposals?

If you do not want any of the proposals to be approved, you must abstain, not vote or vote against such proposal. A stockholder’s failure to vote by proxy or to vote by virtual attendance at the Special Meeting will not be counted towards the number of shares required to validly establish a quorum, and if a valid quorum is otherwise established, such failure to vote will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” the Amendment Proposals but no effect on the Adjournment Proposal. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” each of the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Trust Amendment Proposal and Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

Will you seek any further amendments to liquidate the Trust Account?

Other than the Trust Amendment, until the Amended Termination Date, as described in this proxy statement, we do not anticipate seeking any further amendment to the time period in which we must liquidate the Trust Account if we do not consummate an initial Business Combination.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved, what happens next?

Upon approval of the Amendment Proposals by the requisite stockholder approval, we plan to file the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in the form attached as Annex A hereto. However, we may decide to abandon the Amendments at any time and for any reason prior to filing the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to

the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

Each of the Company’s directors and officers and the Sponsor have agreed to waive their respective rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account in respect of any shares of Class B Common Stock held by him, her or it, although if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Class A Common Stock they hold. The Company will pay the costs of liquidation from $100,000 of interest from the Trust Account and the Company’s remaining assets outside of the Trust Account.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Based upon the amount held in the Trust Account as of                , 2022, which was $                , the Company estimates that the per-share price at which shares of Class A Common Stock may be redeemed from cash held in the Trust Account will be approximately $                at the time of the Special Meeting. The closing price of a share of Class A Common Stock on                , 2022 was $                . The Company cannot assure stockholders that they will be able to sell their shares of Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in its securities when such stockholders wish to sell their shares.

In addition, if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, the redemption of all our shares of Class A Common Stock will result in our Initial Stockholders collectively owning all of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.

What happens if the Amendment Proposals are not approved?

Each of the Amendment Proposals are cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. If the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, our Charter provides that we will (i) by the Original Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock in consideration of a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), by (B) the total number of then outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemption will completely extinguish rights of the public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the DGCL to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Charter Amendment Proposal is approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Each of the Company’s directors and officers and the Sponsor have agreed to waive their respective rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account in respect of any shares of Class B Common Stock held by him, her or it, although if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Class A Common Stock they hold. The Company will pay the costs of liquidation from $100,000 of interest from the Trust Account and the Company’s remaining assets outside of the Trust Account.

Where will I be able to find the voting results of the Special Meeting?

We will announce preliminary voting results at the Special Meeting. We will also disclose voting results on a Current Report on Form 8-K that we will file with the SEC within four business days after the Special Meeting. If final voting results are not available to us in time to file a Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days after the Special Meeting, we will file a Current Report on Form 8-K to publish preliminary results and will provide the final results in an amendment to such Current Report on Form 8-K as soon as they become available.

How do I change my vote?

If you have submitted a proxy to vote your shares and wish to change your vote, you may send a later-dated, signed proxy card to                 so that it is received prior to the vote at the Special Meeting. Stockholders also may revoke their proxy by sending a notice of revocation to                , which must be received prior to the vote at the Special Meeting, or by attending the Special Meeting and revoking their proxy and voting at the Special Meeting. Attendance at the Special Meeting alone will not change your vote. However, if your shares are held in “street name” by your broker, bank or another nominee, you must contact your broker, bank or other nominee to change your vote.

How are votes counted?

Votes will be counted by the inspector of election appointed for the meeting, who will separately count “FOR” and “AGAINST” votes and abstentions for each of the proposals. A stockholder’s failure to vote by proxy or to vote by virtual attendance at the Special Meeting will not be counted towards the number of shares required to validly establish a quorum, and if a valid quorum is otherwise established, such failure to vote will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” the Amendment Proposals but no effect on the Adjournment Proposal. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” each of the Amendment Proposals and Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

If my shares are held in “street name,” will my broker automatically vote them for me?

Your broker can vote your shares with respect to “non-discretionary” items only if you provide instructions on how to vote. You should instruct your broker to vote your shares. Your broker can tell you how to provide these instructions. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” each of the Amendment Proposals and Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

What is a quorum?

A quorum is the minimum number of shares required to be present at the Special Meeting for the Special Meeting to be properly held under our Charter and Delaware law. A majority of the voting power of all issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote as of the Record Date (as defined below) at the Special

Meeting must be represented by virtual attendance or by proxy at the Special Meeting to constitute a quorum. Proxies that are marked “ABSTAIN” will be treated as shares present for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum on all matters.

Who can vote at the Special Meeting?

Only stockholders of record of the Company as of 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on                , 2022 (the “Record Date”) are entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof. On the Record Date, there were 57,750,000 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding, including (i) 55,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock (that were initially sold in the IPO) and (ii) 2,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock. The Company’s warrants do not have voting rights in connection with the proposals.

In deciding all matters at the Special Meeting, each stockholder will be entitled to one vote for each share held by them on the Record Date. Holders of shares of Class A Common Stock and holders of shares of Class B Common Stock will vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of our stockholders except as required by our Charter or applicable law. The Initial Stockholders collectively own all of our issued and outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock, collectively constituting 20% of the aggregate voting power of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.

Registered Stockholders. If our shares are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, Continental, you are considered the stockholder of record with respect to those shares. As the stockholder of record, you have the right to grant your voting proxy directly to the individuals listed on the proxy card or to vote via the Internet at the Special Meeting or prior to the Special Meeting by telephone or through the Internet.

“Street Name” Stockholders. If our shares are held on your behalf in a brokerage account, bank or other nominee, you are considered the beneficial owner of those shares held in “street name,” and your broker, bank or other nominee is considered the stockholder of record with respect to those shares. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank or other nominee as to how to vote your shares. In this regard, you must provide the broker, bank or other nominee with instructions on how to vote your shares. If you hold your shares in “street name” and plan to vote at the Special Meeting you will need to have a legal proxy from the broker, bank or other nominee. A copy of the legal proxy will need to be emailed to proxy@continentalstock.com along with your full name, phone number and request for a control number at least 72 hours prior to the Special Meeting for processing.

Does the Board recommend voting for the approval of the proposals?

Yes. After careful consideration of the terms and conditions of these proposals, the Board has determined that each of the proposals are in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders. The Board recommends that the Company’s stockholders vote “FOR” each of the proposals.

What interests do the Sponsor and the Company’s directors and officers have in the approval of the proposals?

The Sponsor and the Company’s directors and officers have interests in the proposals that may be different from, or in addition to, your interests as a stockholder. In the case of the Sponsor, officers and directors, these interests include ownership of shares of Class A and B Common Stock. See the section entitled “Proposal No. 1 — The Charter Amendment Proposal — Interests of the Sponsor and the Company’s Directors and Officers” for more information.

Are there any appraisal or similar rights for dissenting stockholders?

The DGCL does not provide for appraisal or other similar rights for dissenting stockholders in connection with any of the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting. Accordingly, our stockholders will have no right to dissent and obtain payment for their shares.

Warrant holders do not have appraisal rights in connection with any of the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting.

What happens to the Company’s warrants?

If (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial business combination by the Original Termination Date, our warrants will expire worthless.

How do I vote?

If you are a holder of record of shares of Common Stock on                , 2022, the Record Date for the Special Meeting, you may vote by virtual attendance at the Special Meeting or by submitting a proxy for the Special Meeting. You may submit your proxy by completing, signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the accompanying pre-addressed postage-paid envelope. You will be able to attend the Special Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and submit your questions during the Special Meeting by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/revolutionhealthcareacqcorp/2022. To enter the Special Meeting, you will need the 12-digit control number that is printed on your proxy card. We recommend logging in at least fifteen minutes before the meeting to ensure that you are logged in when the meeting starts. Online check-in will start shortly before the meeting on                 , 2022. If you do not have your control number, you may contact the Company’s transfer agent, Continental, by calling (917) 262-2373 or emailing proxy@continentalstock.com.

If you hold your shares in “street name,” which means your shares are held of record by a broker, bank or other nominee, you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee to ensure that votes related to the shares you beneficially own are properly counted. In this regard, you must provide the broker, bank or other nominee with instructions on how to vote your shares. If you hold your shares in “street name” and plan to vote at the Special Meeting you will need to have a legal proxy from the broker, bank or other nominee. A copy of the legal proxy will need to be emailed to proxy@continentalstock.com along with your full name, phone number and request for a control number at least 72 hours prior to the Special Meeting for processing. If you would like to join the Special Meeting and neither vote nor ask any questions, you can join as a guest.

You are urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided. You may submit your proxy by completing, signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the accompanying pre-addressed postage-paid envelope.

How do I redeem my shares of Common Stock?

Pursuant to the Charter, stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved. You will be entitled to receive cash for any of our shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed by you pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption only if you:

 

  i.

(a) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock or (b) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock as part of units sold by the Company in its IPO and elect to separate such units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising your redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock; and

 

  ii.

prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on                , 2022 (two business days prior to the vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment thereof), (a) submit a written request to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, the Company’s transfer agent, that the Company redeem your shares of Class A Common Stock for cash and (b) tender or deliver your shares of Class A Common Stock and other redemption forms to the transfer agent, physically or electronically through The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).

Table of Contents

Holders of our public units must elect to separate such public units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption. If holders hold their public units in an account at a brokerage firm or bank, holders must notify their broker or bank, as applicable, that they elect to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants, or if a holder holds public units registered in its, his or her own name, the holder must contact the transfer agent directly and instruct it to do so. Your broker, bank or other nominee may have an earlier deadline by which you must provide instructions to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants in order to exercise redemption rights pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock underlying our public units, so you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee or intermediary. Stockholders may elect to redeem all or a portion of their shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption even if they vote against the Amendment Proposals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, stockholders will not have their shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

What should I do if I receive more than one set of voting materials?

You may receive more than one set of voting materials, including multiple copies of this proxy statement and multiple proxy cards or voting instruction cards, if your shares are registered in more than one name or are registered in different accounts. For example, if you hold your shares in more than one brokerage account, you will receive a separate voting instruction card for each brokerage account in which you hold shares. Please complete, sign, date and return each proxy card and voting instruction card that you receive in order to cast a vote with respect to all of your shares.

THE SPECIAL MEETING

Date, Time, Place and Purpose of the Special Meeting

The Special Meeting will be held via the Internet and will be a completely virtual meeting of stockholders. You will be able to attend the Special Meeting online, vote, view the list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and submit your questions during the Special Meeting by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/revolutionhealthcareacqcorp/2022. To enter the Special Meeting, you will need the 12-digit control number that is printed on your proxy card. We recommend logging in at least fifteen minutes before the meeting to ensure that you are logged in when the meeting starts. Online check-in will start shortly before the meeting on                 , 2022.

At the Special Meeting, you will be asked to consider and vote upon proposals to:

 

1.

Proposal No. 1 – The Charter Amendment Proposal – to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter”) pursuant to an amendment to the Charter in the form set forth in Annex A of the accompanying proxy statement (the “Charter Amendment”) to amend the date by which the Company must cease its operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”), and redeem all of the shares of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (“Class A Common Stock”), included as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering that was completed on March 22, 2021 (the “IPO”), from March 22, 2023 (the “Original Termination Date”) to                 , 2022, the date of the Special Meeting (the “Amended Termination Date”) (the “Charter Amendment Proposal”);

 

2.

Proposal 2 – Trust Amendment Proposal – to amend the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated March 17, 2021 (the “Trust Agreement”), by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, as trustee (“Continental”), pursuant to an amendment to the Trust Agreement in the form set forth in Annex B of the accompanying Proxy Statement (the “Trust Amendment” and together with the Charter Amendment, the “Amendments”), to change the date on which Continental must commence liquidation of the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”) to the Amended Termination Date (the “Trust Amendment Proposal” and together with the Charter Amendment Proposal, the “Amendment Proposals”); and

 

3.

Proposal No. 3 – The Adjournment Proposal – to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting from time to time to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Amendment Proposals or if otherwise determined by the chairperson of the Special Meeting to be necessary or appropriate (the “Adjournment Proposal”).

The Company will transact no other business at the Special Meeting, except such business as may properly come before the Special Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof. Each of the Amendment Proposals is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other. Each of the Amendment Proposals and the Adjournment Proposal is more fully described in the accompanying proxy statement, which you are encouraged to read carefully. 

Voting Power; Record Date

Only stockholders of record of the Company as of 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on                , 2022, the Record Date, are entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof. Each of the shares of Common Stock entitles the holder thereof to one vote. If your shares are held in “street name” or are in a margin or similar account, you should contact your broker to ensure that votes related to the shares you beneficially own are properly counted. On the Record Date, there were 57,750,000 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding, including (i) 55,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock (that were initially sold in the IPO) and (ii) 2,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock. The Company’s warrants do not have voting rights in connection with the proposals.

Quorum and Vote of Stockholders

A quorum is the minimum number of shares required to be present at the Special Meeting for the Special Meeting to be properly held under our Charter and Delaware law. A majority of the voting power of all issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote as of the Record Date at the Special Meeting must be represented by virtual attendance or by proxy at the Special Meeting to constitute a quorum. Proxies that are marked “ABSTAIN” will be treated as shares present for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum on all matters. If a stockholder does not give the broker voting instructions, under applicable self-regulatory organization rules, its broker may not vote its shares on “non-discretionary” matters. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

The Initial Stockholders collectively own all of our issued and outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock, collectively constituting 20% of the aggregate voting power of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock. Such shares will be voted in favor of the proposals presented at the Special Meeting.

Votes Required

Approval of the Charter Amendment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class.

Approval of the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock present at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class.

If you do not want any of the proposals to be approved, you must abstain, not vote or vote against such proposal. A stockholder’s failure to vote by proxy or to vote by virtual attendance at the Special Meeting will not be counted towards the number of shares required to validly establish a quorum, and if a valid quorum is otherwise established, such failure to vote will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” the Charter Amendment Proposal and the Trust Amendment Proposal but no effect on the Adjournment Proposal. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” each of the Charter Amendment Proposal, the Trust Amendment Proposal and Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

Voting

You can vote your shares at the Special Meeting by proxy or online by virtually attending the Special Meeting. If your shares are owned directly in your name with our transfer agent, Continental, you are considered, with respect to those shares, the “stockholder of record.” If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account or by a bank or other nominee or intermediary, you are considered the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and are considered a “non-record (beneficial) stockholder.”

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. It is important that your shares be represented at the Special Meeting, regardless of the number of shares that you hold. You are, therefore, urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided.

Stockholders of Record

You can vote by proxy by having one or more individuals who will be at the Special Meeting vote your shares for you. These individuals are called “proxies” and using them to cast your ballot at the Special Meeting is called voting “by proxy.” If you wish to vote by proxy, you must (i) complete the enclosed form, called a “proxy card,” and mail it in the envelope provided or (ii) submit your proxy over the Internet or by telephone in accordance with the instructions on the enclosed proxy card. If you complete the proxy card and mail it in the envelope

Table of Contents

provided or submit your proxy over the Internet or by telephone as described above, you will designate a representative of the Company to act as your proxy at the Special Meeting. One of the aforementioned individuals will then vote your shares at the Special Meeting in accordance with the instructions you have given them in the proxy card with respect to the proposals presented in this proxy statement. Proxies will extend to, and be voted at, any adjournments or postponements of the Special Meeting.

Alternatively, you can vote your shares online by virtually attending the Special Meeting.

Beneficial Owners

If your shares are held in an account through a broker, bank or other nominee or intermediary, you must instruct the broker, bank or other nominee how to vote your shares by following the instructions that the broker, bank or other nominee provides you along with this proxy statement. Your broker, bank or other nominee may have an earlier deadline by which you must provide instructions to it as to how to vote your shares, so you should read carefully the materials provided to you by your broker, bank or other nominee or intermediary.

If you hold your shares in “street name” and plan to vote at the Special Meeting you will need to have a legal proxy from the broker, bank or other nominee. A copy of the legal proxy will need to be emailed to proxy@continentalstock.com along with your full name, phone number and request for a control number at least 72 hours prior to the Special Meeting for processing.

If you do not provide voting instructions to your bank, broker or other nominee or intermediary and you do not vote your shares at the Special Meeting, your shares will not be voted on any proposal on which your bank, broker or other nominee does not have discretionary authority to vote. In these cases, the bank, broker or other nominee or intermediary will not be able to vote your shares on those matters for which specific authorization is required. We believe each of the proposals constitutes a “non-discretionary” matter.

Proxies

The Board is asking for your proxy. Giving your proxy as requested by the Board means you authorize the Company to vote your shares at the Special Meeting in the manner you direct. You may vote for or against each proposal or you may abstain from voting. All valid proxies received prior to the Special Meeting will be voted. All shares represented by a proxy will be voted, and where a stockholder specifies by means of the proxy a choice with respect to any matter to be acted upon, the shares will be voted in accordance with the specification so made. If no choice is indicated on the proxy, the shares will be voted “FOR” each of the proposals and as the proxy holders may determine in their discretion with respect to any other matters that may properly come before the Special Meeting.

Proxies that are marked “ABSTAIN” will be treated as shares present for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum on all matters. If a stockholder does not give the broker voting instructions, under applicable self-regulatory organization rules, its broker may not vote its shares on “non-discretionary” matters. We believe each of the proposals constitutes a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

Stockholders who have questions or need assistance in completing or submitting their proxy cards should contact Okapi Partners LLC, our proxy solicitor, by calling (877) 259-6290, or banks and brokers can call collect at (212) 297-0720, or by emailing info@okapipartners.com.

Revocability of Proxies

If you have submitted a proxy to vote your shares and wish to change your vote, you may send a later-dated, signed proxy card to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer at 20 University Road, Cambridge, Massachusetts

02138 so that it is received by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer prior to the vote at the Special Meeting. Stockholders also may revoke their proxy by sending a notice of revocation to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, which must be received by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer prior to the vote at the Special Meeting, or by attending the Special Meeting and revoking their proxy and voting at the Special Meeting. Attendance at the Special Meeting alone will not change your vote. However, if your shares are held in “street name” by your broker, bank or another nominee, you must contact your broker, bank or other nominee to change your vote.

In this regard, you must provide the broker, bank or nominee with instructions on how to vote your shares or, if you wish to attend the Special Meeting and vote by virtual attendance, obtain a valid proxy from your broker, bank or nominee.

Solicitation of Proxies

Our Board is soliciting proxies for use at the Special Meeting. All costs associated with this solicitation will be borne directly by the Company. We have engaged Okapi Partners LLC to assist in the solicitation of proxies for the Special Meeting. We have agreed to pay Okapi Partners LLC a fee of $                , plus disbursements, and indemnify Okapi Partners LLC and its affiliates against certain claims, liabilities, losses, damages and expenses for their services as the Company’s proxy solicitor.

Dissenters’ Rights and Appraisal Rights

The DGCL does not provide for appraisal or other similar rights for dissenting stockholders in connection with any of the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting. Accordingly, our stockholders will have no right to dissent and obtain payment for their shares.

Warrant holders do not have appraisal rights in connection with any of the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting.

Other Business

The Board does not know of any other matters to be presented at the Special Meeting. The form of proxy accompanying this proxy statement confers discretionary authority upon the named proxy holders with respect to amendments or variations to the matters identified in the accompanying Notice of Special Meeting and with respect to any other matters that may properly come before the Special Meeting. If any additional matters are properly presented at the Special Meeting, or at any adjournments or postponements of the Special Meeting, the persons named in the enclosed proxy card will have discretion to vote the shares they represent in accordance with the recommendations of our Board with respect to any such matters.

PROPOSAL NO. 1 – THE CHARTER AMENDMENT PROPOSAL

Background

We are a blank check company, incorporated on January 11, 2021 as a Delaware corporation, formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar Business Combination with one or more businesses.

In March 2021, we consummated our IPO from which we derived aggregate gross proceeds of $550.0 million. The amount in the Trust Account was initially $10.00 per public share. Like most blank check companies, our charter provides for the return of our IPO proceeds held in trust to the holders of shares of common stock sold in our IPO if there is no qualifying business combination consummated on or before a certain date (in our case, March 22, 2023). Following the closing of the IPO, the gross proceeds were placed in the Trust Account, with Continental acting as trustee.

The Charter Amendment

We are proposing to amend the Company’s Charter pursuant to an amendment in the form set forth in Annex A of this proxy statement to amend the date by which the Company must cease its operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”), and redeem all of the shares of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (“Class A Common Stock”), included as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering that was completed on March 22, 2021 (the “IPO”), from March 22, 2023 (the “Original Termination Date”) to                , 2022, the date of the Special Meeting (the “Amended Termination Date”). If the Charter Amendment is approved and the Charter Amendment is implemented, the approval of the Charter Amendment is intended to constitute the adoption of a plan of complete liquidation of the Company for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

Each of the Amendment Proposals is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other.

Reasons for the Charter Amendment Proposal

Since our IPO, our management team evaluated more than                target businesses and employed a broad set of search criteria for potential target businesses. In evaluating potential target businesses, our management team remained focused on finding fair valuations amid volatile market conditions. Amid high valuations in 2021 and a declining IPO market in 2022, we have been unable to secure an opportunity that offered a compelling return on investment for our stockholders. In light of these circumstances, we have determined that it is very unlikely that the Company will be able to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date. These factors, combined with recent changes in U.S. tax law which may increase our tax liabilities in connection with stockholder redemptions occurring on or after January 1, 2023, have led us to believe that it is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders for the Company to return capital to our stockholders by ceasing all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter.

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary

Table of Contents

Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

The purpose of the Amendment Proposals is to allow the Company to return capital to stockholders prior to the Original Termination Date. The Board believes returning capital from the Trust Account to our stockholders is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.

You are not being asked to vote on an initial Business Combination at this time. We have determined that it is very unlikely that we will be able to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we plan to cease all operations on the Amended Termination Date except for the purpose of winding up and redeeming all of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock promptly thereafter, which the Board believes is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.

If the Charter Amendment Proposal Is Approved

Upon approval of the Amendment Proposals by the requisite stockholder approval, we plan to file the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in the form attached as Annex A hereto. However, we may decide to abandon the Amendments at any time and for any reason prior to filing the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares

of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption , after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation,, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

Each of the Company’s directors and officers and the Sponsor have agreed to waive their respective rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account in respect of any shares of Class B Common Stock held by him, her or it, although if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Class A Common Stock they hold. The Company will pay the costs of liquidation from $100,000 of interest from the Trust Account and the Company’s remaining assets outside of the Trust Account.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Based upon the amount held in the Trust Account as of                , 2022, which was $                , the Company estimates that the per-share price at which shares of Class A Common Stock may be redeemed from cash held in the Trust Account will be approximately $                at the time of the Special Meeting. The closing price of a share of Class A Common Stock on                , 2022 was $                . The Company cannot assure stockholders that they will be able to sell their shares of Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in its securities when such stockholders wish to sell their shares.

In addition, if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, the redemption of all our shares of Class A Common Stock will result in our Initial Stockholders collectively owning all of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.

If the Charter Amendment Proposal Is Not Approved

We have determined that it is very unlikely that the Company will be able to complete an initial Business Combination by either the Original Termination Date or the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, our Charter provides that we will (i) by the Original Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter

subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock in consideration of a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), by (B) the total number of then outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemption will completely extinguish rights of the public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Charter Amendment Proposal is approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Each of the Company’s directors and officers and the Sponsor have agreed to waive their respective rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account in respect of any shares of Class B Common Stock held by him, her or it, although if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Class A Common Stock they hold. The Company will pay the costs of liquidation from $100,000 of interest from the Trust Account and the Company’s remaining assets outside of the Trust Account.

Each of the Charter Amendment Proposal and the Trust Amendment Proposal is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other.

Redemption Rights

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.    

You will be entitled to receive cash for any of our shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed by you pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption only if you:

 

  (i)

(a) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock or (b) hold our shares of Class A Common Stock as part of units sold by the Company in its IPO and elect to separate such units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising your redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock; and

 

  (ii)

(ii) prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on                , 2022 (two business days prior to the vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment thereof), (a) submit a written request to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York limited purpose trust company, the Company’s transfer agent, that the Company redeem your shares of Class A Common Stock for cash and (b) tender or deliver your shares of Class A Common Stock and other redemption forms to the transfer agent, physically or electronically through The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).

Holders of our public units must elect to separate such public units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants prior to exercising redemption rights with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption. If holders hold their public units in an account at a brokerage firm or bank, holders must notify their broker or bank, as applicable, that they elect to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants, or if a holder holds public units registered in its, his or her own name, the holder must contact the transfer agent directly and instruct it to do so. Your broker, bank or other nominee may have an earlier deadline by which you must provide instructions to separate the units into the underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and public warrants in order to exercise redemption rights pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption with respect to our shares of Class A Common Stock underlying our public units, so you should contact your broker, bank or other nominee or intermediary. Stockholders may elect to redeem all or a portion of their shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption even if they vote against the Amendment Proposals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, stockholders will not have their shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

TO DEMAND REDEMPTION FOR YOUR SHARES OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK, YOU MUST ENSURE YOUR BANK OR BROKER COMPLIES WITH THE REQUIREMENTS IDENTIFIED HEREIN, INCLUDING SUBMITTING A WRITTEN REQUEST THAT YOUR SHARES OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK BE REDEEMED FOR CASH TO THE TRANSFER AGENT AND TENDERING AND DELIVERING YOUR SHARES OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK AND OTHER REDEMPTION FORMS TO THE TRANSFER AGENT PRIOR TO 5:00 P.M., NEW YORK CITY TIME, ON                 , 2022 (TWO BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO THE VOTE AT THE SPECIAL MEETING OR ANY ADJOURNMENT THEREOF).

Through the Deposit Withdrawal at Custodian (“DWAC”) system, this electronic delivery process can be accomplished by the stockholder, whether or not it is a record holder or its shares are held in “street name,” by contacting the transfer agent or its broker and requesting delivery of its shares through the DWAC system. Delivering shares physically may take significantly longer. In order to obtain a physical stock certificate, a stockholder’s broker and/or clearing broker, DTC, and the Company’s transfer agent will need to act together to facilitate this request. There is a nominal cost associated with the above-referenced tendering process and the act of certificating the shares or delivering them through the DWAC system. The transfer agent will typically charge a tendering broker fee and the broker would determine whether or not to pass this cost on to the redeeming holder. It is the Company’s understanding that stockholders should generally allot at least two weeks to obtain physical certificates from the transfer agent. The Company does not have any control over this process or over the brokers or DTC, and it may take longer than two weeks to obtain a physical stock certificate. Such stockholders will have less time to make their investment decision than those stockholders that deliver their shares through the DWAC system. Stockholders who request physical stock certificates and wish to redeem may be unable to meet the deadline for tendering their shares before exercising their redemption rights and thus may be unable to redeem their shares.

Certificates that have not been tendered in accordance with these procedures prior to the vote on the Amendment Proposals will not be redeemed for cash held in the Trust Account pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption; provided that if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common

Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law. In the event that a stockholder tenders its shares of Class A Common Stock and decides prior to the vote at the Special Meeting that it does not want to redeem its shares of Class A Common Stock, the stockholder may withdraw the tender. If you delivered your shares for redemption to our transfer agent and decide prior to the vote at the Special Meeting not to redeem your shares, you may request that our transfer agent return the shares (physically or electronically). You may make such request by contacting our transfer agent at the address listed above. In the event that a public stockholder tenders shares and the Amendment Proposals are not approved, these shares of Class A Common Stock will not be redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption and the physical certificates representing these shares will be returned to the stockholder promptly following the determination that the Amendment Proposals will not be approved. The transfer agent will hold the certificates of stockholders that make the election until such shares of Class A Common Stock are redeemed for cash or returned to such stockholders.

Based upon the amount held in the Trust Account as of                 , 2022, which was $                , the Company estimates that the per-share price at which shares of Class A Common Stock may be redeemed from cash held in the Trust Account will be approximately $                 at the time of the Special Meeting. The closing price of a share of Class A Common Stock on                 , 2022 was $                . The Company cannot assure stockholders that they will be able to sell their shares of Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in its securities when such stockholders wish to sell their shares.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, whether or not you exercise your redemption rights pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, your shares of Class A Common Stock will be redeemed for cash and you will no longer own such shares. The Company anticipates that a stockholder who tenders shares of Class A Common Stock for redemption pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption would receive payment of the redemption price for such shares soon after the implementation of the Charter Amendment.

Vote Required for Approval

Approval of the Charter Amendment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” the Charter Amendment Proposal. We believe each of the proposals constitutes a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

Each of the Charter Amendment Proposal and the Trust Amendment Proposal is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other.

The Initial Stockholders are expected to vote all shares of Common Stock owned by them in favor of the Charter Amendment Proposal. On the Record Date, the Initial Stockholders beneficially owned and were entitled to vote an aggregate of 2,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock, collectively representing 20% of the aggregate voting power of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock. See the section entitled “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management” for additional information regarding the holders of shares of Common Stock and their respective ownership thereof.

In addition, subject to applicable securities laws (including with respect to material nonpublic information), the Sponsor, the Company’s directors, officers or advisors or any of their respective affiliates may (i) purchase

 

24


Table of Contents

shares of Class A Common Stock from institutional and other investors (including those who vote, or indicate an intention to vote, against any of the proposals presented at the Special Meeting, or elect to redeem, or indicate an intention to redeem, shares of Class A Common Stock), (ii) enter into transactions with such investors and others to provide them with incentives to not redeem their shares of Class A Common Stock, or (iii) execute agreements to purchase such shares of Class A Common Stock from such investors or enter into non-redemption agreements in the future. In the event that the Sponsor, the Company’s directors, officers or advisors or any of their respective affiliates purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in situations in which the tender offer rules and restrictions on purchases would apply, they (a) would purchase the shares of Class A Common Stock at a price no higher than the price offered through the Company’s redemption process (i.e., approximately $                 per share, based on the amounts held in the Trust Account as of                , 2022); (b) would represent in writing that such shares of Class A Common Stock will not be voted in favor of approving the Charter Amendment Proposal; and (c) would waive in writing any redemption rights with respect to the shares of Class A Common Stock so purchased.

Subject to the immediately preceding paragraph, the Sponsor or the Company’s directors, officers or advisors, or any of their respective affiliates, may purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in privately negotiated transactions or in the open market prior to the Special Meeting, although they are under no obligation to do so. Any such purchases that are completed after the Record Date may include an agreement with a selling stockholder that such stockholder, for so long as it remains the record holder of the shares in question, will vote in favor of the proposals and/or will not exercise its redemption rights with respect to the shares so purchased. The purpose of such share purchases and other transactions would be to increase the likelihood that the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting are approved by the requisite number of votes. In the event that such purchases do occur, the purchasers may seek to purchase shares from stockholders who would otherwise have voted against the proposals and elected to redeem their shares for a portion of the Trust Account. Any such privately negotiated purchases may be effected at purchase prices that are below or in excess of the per-share pro rata portion of the Trust Account. None of the funds held in the Trust Account will be used to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock or warrants in such transactions. Any shares of Class A Common Stock held by or subsequently purchased by our affiliates may be voted in favor of the proposals. Additionally, at any time at or prior to the Special Meeting, subject to applicable securities laws (including with respect to material non-public information) the Sponsor or the Company’s directors, officers or advisors, or any of their respective affiliates, may, although they are under no obligation to do so, enter into transactions with investors and others to provide them with incentives to acquire shares of Class A Common Stock, vote their shares of Class A Common Stock in favor of the proposals or not redeem their shares of Class A Common Stock. The Sponsor and the Company’s directors, officers and advisors and any of their respective affiliates are restricted from making any such purchases when they are in possession of any material nonpublic information not disclosed to the seller, during a restricted period under Regulation M under the Exchange Act or during any applicable blackout period under the Company’s insider trading policy.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. It is important that your shares be represented at the Special Meeting, regardless of the number of shares that you hold. You are, therefore, urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided.

Interests of the Sponsor and the Company’s Directors and Officers

When you consider the recommendation of our Board, you should keep in mind that the Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors have interests that may be different from, or in addition to, your interests as a stockholder. These interests include, among other things:

 

   

If (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved, and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, the shares of Class B Common Stock held by our initial stockholders (as the Sponsor and our directors and officers have waived liquidation rights with respect to such shares) will become worthless;

 

25


Table of Contents
   

In connection with the IPO, the Sponsor agreed that it will be liable under certain circumstances to ensure that the proceeds in the Trust Account are not reduced by the claims of any third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company or prospective target businesses with which the Company has entered into certain agreements;

 

   

All rights specified in the Charter relating to the right of officers and directors to be indemnified by the Company, and of the Company’s officers and directors to be exculpated from monetary liability with respect to prior acts or omissions, will continue after an initial Business Combination and, if (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, so that the Company liquidates, the Company will not be able to perform its obligations to its officers and directors under those provisions; and

 

   

The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors and their respective affiliates are entitled to reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses incurred by them related to identifying, investigating, negotiating and completing an initial Business Combination and, if (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, they will not have any claim against the Trust Account for reimbursement so that the Company will most likely be unable to reimburse such expenses.

Recommendation

As discussed above, after careful consideration of all relevant factors, our Board has determined that the Charter Amendment Proposal is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders. Our Board has approved and declared advisable the adoption of the Charter Amendment Proposal.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE CHARTER

SHOULD REDEEM YOUR SHARES OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK.

PROPOSAL NO. 2 — THE TRUST AMENDMENT PROPOSAL

Background

We are a blank check company, incorporated on January 11, 2021 as a Delaware corporation, formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar Business Combination with one or more businesses.

In March 2021, we consummated our IPO from which we derived aggregate gross proceeds of $550.0 million. The amount in the Trust Account was initially $10.00 per public share. Like most blank check companies, our charter provides for the return of our IPO proceeds held in trust to the holders of shares of common stock sold in our IPO if there is no qualifying business combination consummated on or before a certain date (in our case, March 22, 2023). Following the closing of the IPO, the gross proceeds were placed in the Trust Account, with Continental acting as trustee.

The Trust Amendment

We propose to amend the Trust Agreement, pursuant to an amendment to the Trust Agreement in the form set forth in Annex B of this proxy statement, to change the date on which Continental must commence liquidation of the Trust Account to the Amended Termination Date, such that Continental shall commence liquidation of the Trust Account promptly upon the Amended Termination Date once the Trust Amendment Proposal is approved at the Special Meeting.

Each of the Amendment Proposals is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other.

Reasons for the Trust Amendment Proposal

Continental’s role as trustee of the Trust Account is subject to the terms and conditions of the Trust Agreement. The Trust Agreement currently provides that Continental shall commence liquidation of the Trust Account only and promptly (x) after its receipt of the applicable instruction letter delivered by the Company in connection with either a closing of an initial business combination or the Company’s inability to effect an initial business combination within the time frame specified in the Charter or (y) upon the date that is the later of the Original Termination Date and such later date as may be approved by the Company’s stockholders in accordance with the Charter, if the aforementioned termination letter has not been received by Continental prior to such date. The Trust Agreement further provides that the provision described in the preceding sentence may not be modified, amended or deleted without the affirmative vote of 65% of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock, voting together as a single class or Company stockholders of record as of the record date who hold sixty-five percent (65%) or more of all then outstanding shares of Common Stock, voting together as a single class, have delivered to Continental a signed writing approving such change, amendment or modification.

If the Trust Amendment Proposal Is Approved

Upon approval of the Amendment Proposals by the requisite stockholder approval, we plan to file the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in the form attached as Annex A hereto. However, we may decide to abandon the Amendments at any time and for any reason prior to filing the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.

Pursuant to our Charter, our stockholders may request that the Company redeem all or a portion of such stockholder’s shares of Class A Common Stock for cash if the Amendment Proposals are approved for a per-share price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”), including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, regardless of how such public stockholders vote on the

Table of Contents

Amendment Proposals or if they vote at all (the “Voluntary Redemption”); provided, we will not redeem shares of our Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption to the extent that such Voluntary Redemptions would cause us to have less than $5,000,001 of net tangible assets following approval of the Amendments (such limitation, the “Redemption Limitation”). However, public stockholders will not have their shares redeemed pursuant to Voluntary Redemption unless the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented.

If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock that were redeemed by our stockholders pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

Each of the Company’s directors and officers and the Sponsor have agreed to waive their respective rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account in respect of any shares of Class B Common Stock held by him, her or it, although if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Class A Common Stock they hold. The Company will pay the costs of liquidation from $100,000 of interest from the Trust Account and the Company’s remaining assets outside of the Trust Account.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Amendment Proposals are approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Based upon the amount held in the Trust Account as of                , 2022, which was $                , the Company estimates that the per-share price at which our shares of Class A Common Stock may be redeemed from cash held in the Trust Account will be approximately $                at the time of the Special Meeting. The closing price of a share of Class A Common Stock on                , 2022 was $                . The Company cannot assure stockholders that they will be able to sell their shares of Class A Common Stock in the open market, even if the market price per share is higher than the redemption price stated above, as there may not be sufficient liquidity in its securities when such stockholders wish to sell their shares.

In addition, if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, the redemption of all our shares of Class A Common Stock will result in our Initial Stockholders collectively owning all of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.

If the Trust Amendment Proposal Is Not Approved

We have determined that it is very unlikely that the Company will be able to complete an initial Business Combination by either the Original Termination Date or the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate a Business Combination by the Original Termination

Date, our Charter provides that we will (i) by the Original Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all of our shares of Class A Common Stock in consideration of a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), by (B) the total number of then outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemption will completely extinguish rights of the public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the DGCL to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to our warrants, which will expire worthless if we fail to complete a Business Combination by the Original Termination Date or, if the Charter Amendment Proposal is approved, the Amended Termination Date.

Each of the Company’s directors and officers and the Sponsor have agreed to waive their respective rights to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account in respect of any shares of Class B Common Stock held by him, her or it, although if the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, they will be entitled to liquidating distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Class A Common Stock they hold. The Company will pay the costs of liquidation from $100,000 of interest from the Trust Account and the Company’s remaining assets outside of the Trust Account.

Vote Required for Approval

Approval of the Trust Amendment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class as per Section 6(d) of the Trust Agreement. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” the Trust Amendment Proposal. We believe each of the proposals constitutes a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

Each of the Charter Amendment Proposal and the Trust Amendment Proposal is cross-conditioned on the approval of each other.

The Initial Stockholders are expected to vote all shares of Common Stock owned by them in favor of the Trust Amendment Proposal. On the Record Date, the Initial Stockholders beneficially owned and were entitled to vote an aggregate of 2,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock, collectively representing 20% of the aggregate voting power of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock. See the section entitled “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management” for additional information regarding the holders of shares of Common Stock and their respective ownership thereof.

In addition, subject to applicable securities laws (including with respect to material nonpublic information), the Sponsor, the Company’s directors, officers or advisors or any of their respective affiliates may (i) purchase shares of Class A Common Stock from institutional and other investors (including those who vote, or indicate an intention to vote, against any of the proposals presented at the Special Meeting, or elect to redeem, or indicate an intention to redeem, shares of Class A Common Stock), (ii) enter into transactions with such investors and others to provide them with incentives to not redeem their shares of Class A Common Stock, or (iii) execute agreements to purchase such shares of Class A Common Stock from such investors or enter into non-redemption agreements in the future. In the event that the Sponsor, the Company’s directors, officers or advisors or any of their respective affiliates purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in situations in which the tender offer rules and restrictions on purchases would apply, they (a) would purchase the shares of Class A Common Stock at a price

 

29


Table of Contents

no higher than the price offered through the Company’s redemption process (i.e., approximately $                 per share, based on the amounts held in the Trust Account as of                , 2022); (b) would represent in writing that such shares of Class A Common Stock will not be voted in favor of approving the Trust Amendment Proposal; and (c) would waive in writing any redemption rights with respect to the shares of Class A Common Stock so purchased.

Subject to the immediately preceding paragraph, the Sponsor or the Company’s directors, officers or advisors, or any of their respective affiliates, may purchase shares of Class A Common Stock in privately negotiated transactions or in the open market prior to the Special Meeting, although they are under no obligation to do so. Any such purchases that are completed after the Record Date may include an agreement with a selling stockholder that such stockholder, for so long as it remains the record holder of the shares in question, will vote in favor of the proposals and/or will not exercise its redemption rights with respect to the shares so purchased. The purpose of such share purchases and other transactions would be to increase the likelihood that the proposals to be voted upon at the Special Meeting are approved by the requisite number of votes. In the event that such purchases do occur, the purchasers may seek to purchase shares from stockholders who would otherwise have voted against the proposals and elected to redeem their shares for a portion of the Trust Account. Any such privately negotiated purchases may be effected at purchase prices that are below or in excess of the per-share pro rata portion of the Trust Account. None of the funds held in the Trust Account will be used to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock or warrants in such transactions. Any shares of Class A Common Stock held by or subsequently purchased by our affiliates may be voted in favor of the proposals. Additionally, at any time at or prior to the Special Meeting, subject to applicable securities laws (including with respect to material non-public information) the Sponsor or the Company’s directors, officers or advisors, or any of their respective affiliates, may, although they are under no obligation to do so, enter into transactions with investors and others to provide them with incentives to acquire shares of Class A Common Stock, vote their shares of Class A Common Stock in favor of the proposals or not redeem their shares of Class A Common Stock. The Sponsor and the Company’s directors, officers and advisors and any of their respective affiliates are restricted from making any such purchases when they are in possession of any material nonpublic information not disclosed to the seller, during a restricted period under Regulation M under the Exchange Act or during any applicable blackout period under the Company’s insider trading policy.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. It is important that your shares be represented at the Special Meeting, regardless of the number of shares that you hold. You are, therefore, urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided.

Interests of the Sponsor and the Company’s Directors and Officers

When you consider the recommendation of our Board, you should keep in mind that the Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors have interests that may be different from, or in addition to, your interests as a stockholder. These interests include, among other things:

 

   

If (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved, and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, the shares of Class B Common Stock held by our initial stockholders (as the Sponsor and our directors and officers have waived liquidation rights with respect to such shares) will become worthless;

 

   

In connection with the IPO, the Sponsor agreed that it will be liable under certain circumstances to ensure that the proceeds in the Trust Account are not reduced by the claims of any third party for services rendered or products sold to the Company or prospective target businesses with which the Company has entered into certain agreements;

 

   

All rights specified in the Charter relating to the right of officers and directors to be indemnified by the Company, and of the Company’s officers and directors to be exculpated from monetary liability with

Table of Contents
 

respect to prior acts or omissions, will continue after an initial Business Combination and, if (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, so that the Company liquidates, the Company will not be able to perform its obligations to its officers and directors under those provisions; and

 

   

The Sponsor and the Company’s officers and directors and their respective affiliates are entitled to reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses incurred by them related to identifying, investigating, negotiating and completing an initial Business Combination and, if (x) the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented or (y) the Amendment Proposals are not approved and we do not consummate an initial Business Combination by the Original Termination Date, they will not have any claim against the Trust Account for reimbursement so that the Company will most likely be unable to reimburse such expenses.

Recommendation

As discussed above, after careful consideration of all relevant factors, our Board has determined that the Trust Amendment Proposal is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders. Our Board has approved and declared advisable the adoption of the Trust Amendment Proposal.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE TRUST AMENDMENT PROPOSAL. OUR BOARD EXPRESSES NO OPINION AS TO WHETHER YOU SHOULD REDEEM YOUR SHARES OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK.

PROPOSAL NO. 3 — THE ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL

Overview

The Adjournment Proposal, if adopted, will allow our Board to adjourn the Special Meeting from time to time to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Amendment Proposals or if otherwise determined by the chairperson of the Special Meeting to be necessary or appropriate.

Consequences if the Adjournment Proposal is Not Approved

If the Adjournment Proposal is not approved by our stockholders, our Board may not be able to adjourn the Special Meeting to a later date in the event that there are insufficient votes for, or otherwise in connection with, the approval of the Amendment Proposals.

Vote Required for Approval

Approval of the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the total voting power of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock present at the Special Meeting and entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class. Abstentions will be counted in connection with the determination of whether a valid quorum is established. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “AGAINST” the Adjournment Proposal. We believe that each of the proposals is a “non-discretionary” matter, and therefore, there will not be any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

As of the Record Date, the Sponsor and the Company’s directors, officers and initial stockholders and their permitted transferees (collectively, the “Initial Stockholders”) collectively owned shares of our Class B Common Stock that entitles such holders, in the aggregate, to 20% of the voting power of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, voting as a single class. The Initial Stockholders are expected to vote all of their shares of Common Stock in favor of each proposal to be voted upon by our stockholders at the Special Meeting.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT. It is important that your shares be represented at the Special Meeting, regardless of the number of shares that you hold. You are, therefore, urged to execute and return, at your earliest convenience, the enclosed proxy card in the envelope that has also been provided.

Recommendation of the Board

As discussed above, after careful consideration of all relevant factors, our Board has determined that the Adjournment Proposal is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders. Therefore, if there are insufficient votes for, or otherwise in connection with, the approval of the Amendment Proposals, our Board will approve and declare advisable adoption of the Adjournment Proposal.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT

The following table sets forth information available to us as of                , 2022, with respect to our shares of Common Stock held by:

 

   

each person known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock;

 

   

each of our named executive officers and directors; and

 

   

all our executive officers and directors as a group.

Beneficial ownership is determined according to the rules of the SEC, which generally provide that a person has beneficial ownership of a security if he, she or it possesses sole or shared voting or investment power over that security, including options and warrants that are currently exercisable or will become exercisable within 60 days. Except as described in the footnotes below and subject to applicable community property laws and similar laws, we believe that each person listed below has sole voting and investment power with respect to such shares.

In the table below, percentage ownership is based on 57,750,000 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of                , 2022, including 55,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock and 2,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock. Voting power represents the combined voting power of shares of Common Stock owned beneficially by such person. On all matters to be voted upon, the holders of the shares of Common Stock vote together as a single class. The table below does not include any shares of Common Stock underlying our outstanding warrants because such securities are not exercisable within 60 days of                , 2022.

CERTAIN MATERIAL UNITED STATES FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSIDERATIONS

The following is a discussion of certain material U.S. federal income tax considerations generally applicable to the redemption of Class A Common Stock for cash, in connection with either (i) an exercise of redemption rights pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption or (ii) our liquidation, in each case, in the event the Amendment Proposals are approved (collectively, the “Redemption”), and the expiration of warrants in such event. This discussion applies only to Class A Common Stock and warrants that are held as capital assets for U.S. federal income tax purposes (generally, property that is held for investment). This discussion does not describe all of the U.S. federal income tax consequences that may be relevant to holders in light of their particular circumstances or status, including:

 

   

the Sponsor or our directors and officers;

 

   

Banks and other financial institutions or financial services entities;

 

   

broker-dealers;

 

   

taxpayers that are subject to the mark-to-market method of accounting;

 

   

tax-exempt entities;

 

   

qualified foreign pension plans;

 

   

governments or agencies or instrumentalities thereof;

 

   

insurance companies;

 

   

regulated investment companies or real estate investment trusts;

 

   

expatriates or former long-term residents of the United States;

 

   

persons that actually or constructively own five percent or more of our voting shares or five percent or more of the total value of any class of our shares;

 

   

persons that acquired our securities pursuant to an exercise of employee stock options or upon payout of a restricted stock unit, in connection with employee stock incentive plans or otherwise as compensation or in connection with the performance of services;

 

   

persons that hold Class A Common Stock as part of a straddle, constructive sale, hedging, conversion or other integrated or similar transaction;

 

   

U.S. Holders (as defined below) whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar;

 

   

controlled foreign corporations; and

 

   

passive foreign investment companies.

This discussion is based on the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Code”), proposed, temporary and final Treasury Regulations promulgated under the Code, and judicial and administrative interpretations thereof, all as of the date hereof. All of the foregoing are subject to change, which change could apply retroactively and could affect the tax considerations described herein. This discussion does not address U.S. federal taxes other than those pertaining to U.S. federal income taxation (such as estate or gift taxes, the alternative minimum tax or the Medicare tax on investment income), nor does it address any aspects of U.S. state or local or non-U.S. taxation.

We have not and do not intend to seek any rulings from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) regarding the tax consequences described herein. There can be no assurance that the IRS will not take positions inconsistent with the considerations discussed below or that any such positions would not be sustained by a court.

This discussion does not consider the tax treatment of partnerships or other pass-through entities (or any entity or arrangement so characterized for U.S. federal income tax purposes) or persons who hold our securities through

 

36


Table of Contents

such entities. If a partnership (or any entity or arrangement so characterized for U.S. federal income tax purposes) holds Class A Common Stock or warrants, the tax treatment of such partnership and a person treated as a partner of such partnership will generally depend on the status of the partner and the activities of the partnership. Partnerships holding our securities and persons that are treated as partners of such partnerships should consult their tax advisors as to the particular U.S. federal income tax consequences to them of the transactions described herein.

EACH HOLDER SHOULD CONSULT ITS TAX ADVISOR WITH RESPECT TO THE PARTICULAR TAX CONSEQUENCES TO SUCH HOLDER OF A REDEMPTION OF CLASS A COMMON STOCK AND EXPIRATION OF WARRANTS, INCLUDING THE EFFECTS OF U.S. FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL AND NON-U.S. TAX LAWS.

U.S. Holders

As used herein, a “U.S. Holder” is a beneficial owner of Class A Common Stock or warrants who or that is, for U.S. federal income tax purposes:

 

   

an individual citizen or resident of the United States,

 

   

a corporation (or other entity that is treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes) that is created or organized (or treated as created or organized) in or under the laws of the United States or any state thereof or the District of Columbia,

 

   

an estate whose income is subject to U.S. federal income tax regardless of its source, or

 

   

a trust if (1) a U.S. court can exercise primary supervision over the administration of such trust and one or more U.S. persons have the authority to control all substantial decisions of the trust or (2) it has a valid election in place to be treated as a U.S. person.

If a beneficial owner of our securities is not described as a U.S. Holder and is not an entity treated as a partnership or other pass-through entity (or any entity or arrangement so characterized), in each case, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, such owner will be considered a “non-U.S. Holder.” The U.S. federal income tax considerations specifically applicable to non-U.S. Holders are described below under the heading “Non-U.S. Holders.”

Redemption of Class A Common Stock Pursuant to the Redemption

If the Amendment Proposals are approved, a redemption of a U.S. Holder’s Class A Common Stock pursuant to the Redemption will be treated as a taxable sale or exchange. A U.S. Holder will generally recognize capital gain or loss in an amount equal to the difference between (i) the amount realized in connection with the Redemption and (ii) the U.S. Holder’s adjusted tax basis in the Class A Common Stock redeemed.

Under tax law currently in effect, long-term capital gains recognized by non-corporate U.S. Holders are generally subject to U.S. federal income tax at a reduced rate of tax. Capital gain or loss will constitute long-term capital gain or loss if the U.S. Holder’s holding period for the Class A Common Stock exceeds one year. The deductibility of capital losses is subject to limitations. Each U.S. Holder who holds different blocks of Class A Common Stock (Class A Common Stock purchased or acquired on different dates or at different prices) should consult its tax advisor to determine how the above rules apply to them.

Expiration of a Warrant

If the Amendments are approved, our warrants, which do not become exercisable unless we complete an initial Business Combination, will expire worthless. In such case, a U.S. Holder will generally recognize a capital loss equal to such holder’s tax basis in the expired warrants. The deductibility of capital losses is subject to limitations.

A non-U.S. Holder will generally not be subject to U.S. federal income or withholding tax in respect of gain recognized on a redemption of Class A Common Stock in connection with the Redemption, unless:

 

   

the gain is effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business by the non-U.S. Holder within the United States (and, if an applicable tax treaty so requires, is attributable to a U.S. permanent establishment or fixed base maintained by the non-U.S. Holder);

 

   

the non-U.S. Holder is an individual who is present in the United States for a period or periods aggregating 183 days or more in the taxable year of disposition and certain other conditions are met; or

 

   

we are or have been a “United States real property holding corporation” (“USRPHC”) for U.S. federal income tax purposes at any time during the shorter of the five-year period ending on the date of disposition or the period that the non-U.S. Holder held the Class A Common Stock.

Gain described in the first bullet point above will generally be subject to tax at generally applicable U.S. federal income tax rates as if the non-U.S. Holder were a U.S. resident. Any gains described in the first bullet point above of a non-U.S. Holder that is a foreign corporation may also be subject to an additional “branch profits tax” at a 30% rate (or lower applicable treaty rate). Gain described in the second bullet point above will generally be subject to a flat 30% U.S. federal income tax. Each Non-U.S. Holders should consult its tax advisor regarding possible eligibility for benefits under income tax treaties.

Generally, a corporation is a USRPHC if the fair market value of its “United States real property interests” equals or exceeds 50% of the sum of the fair market value of its worldwide real property interests plus other assets used or held for use in a trade or business, as determined for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Based on the current composition of our assets, we believe we are not currently a USRPHC.

Expiration of a Warrant

If the Amendments are approved, our warrants, which do not become exercisable unless we complete an initial Business Combination, will expire worthless. In such case, a non-U.S. Holder will generally recognize a capital loss equal to such holder’s tax basis in the expired warrants. The deductibility of capital losses is subject to various limitations.

OTHER MATTERS

Stockholder Proposals

For any proposal to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement and form of proxy for submission to stockholders at an annual meeting of stockholders, it must be submitted in writing and comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act and the Charter. Such proposals must be received by the Company at its executive offices at a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials for an annual meeting.

We have determined that it is very unlikely that the Company will be able to complete an initial Business Combination by either the Original Termination Date or the Amended Termination Date. If the Amendment Proposals are approved and the Amendments are implemented, we will (i) on the Amended Termination Date cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem all other issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock that would not otherwise redeemed pursuant to the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, and also redeem all of the remaining issued and outstanding shares of our Class A Common Stock not redeemed in the Voluntary Redemption, after giving effect to the Redemption Limitation, in each case, at a per-share redemption price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its franchise and income taxes (less up to $100,000 of such interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of our then-issued and outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, which redemptions will completely extinguish the rights of our public stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions from us, if any), and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemptions, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholder(s) of the Company and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

Delivery Of Documents To Stockholders

For stockholders receiving printed proxy materials, unless we have received contrary instructions, we may send a single copy of this proxy statement to any household at which two or more stockholders reside if we believe the stockholders are members of the same family. This process, known as “householding,” reduces the volume of duplicate information received at any one household and helps to reduce our expenses. However, if stockholders prefer to receive multiple sets of our disclosure documents at the same address, the stockholders should follow the instructions described below. Similarly, if an address is shared with another stockholder and together both of the stockholders would like to receive only a single set of our disclosure documents, the stockholders should follow these instructions:

 

   

if the shares are registered in the name of the stockholder, the stockholder should contact Company’s Chief Executive Officer at 20 University Road, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138 to inform us of their request; or

 

   

if a bank, broker or other nominee holds the shares, the stockholder should contact the bank, broker or other nominee directly.

Where You Can Find More Information
